You can freeze time, where do you go first?

Asked by nzigler (1314 points ) November 18th, 2009

Congratulations! You can freeze time. You can now go a lot of places and do a lot of things you couldn’t before! You can drop your pants in the conference room. You can run through Walmart smashing things with a baseball bat. You can go spy on your neighbors. But, what WILL you do?

Two rules:

1. Please don’t say you’ll go ogle your favorite model/movie star (or worse). That’s creepy and boring.
2. If you’re answer is ‘Id go to the bank vault’- well… don’t say that.

As for me, I’d like to go open the documents Jackie Kennedy left at the Kennedy library to be opened decades from now.

Bed. Lame as it sounds, I would sleep happily for a good, solid weeks worth of time.

nzigler's avatar

@RocketSquid I’m worried for you if time has to stop for you to catch up on sleep! Get a glass of warm milk and call it a night my friend.

lebasting's avatar

to my laptop to play on the Sims 3. hehehe don’t ask….

augustlan's avatar

I have enough work to do in my house that I could easily stay here for a month and not get it all done. I sure would like to make a dent in it, though!

Disclaimer: I’m medicated and a bit high

I’d go tongue down random, attractive women and touch their breasticles!

shego's avatar

I would go and see my ex and beat him with my little tee ball bat and bring my puppy home. Then I would go and f-up his uncles motor home just cause he’s an ass.

nzigler's avatar

@Facade you technically stayed within the parameters of the rules. I applaud your answer.

So far, you Jellies seem to be sleep and freetime deprived with a hint of violent rage. Intriguing.

lebasting's avatar

…..ew facade…...

Facade's avatar

I cannot be held responsible for what I say tonight! haha

lebasting's avatar

O.o still…..bleh….

rangerr's avatar

So. Is just time frozen? Or is the world minus you frozen as it is?

lebasting's avatar

isn’t it amazing how we’re all up at this time? what pathetic people we are….

lebasting's avatar

im pretty sure the whole world minus you is frozen…

nzigler's avatar

@rangerr it was meant to imply frozenness yet you can ‘go’ places etc. therefore you are ‘thawed’, world is ‘frozen’.

@lebasting You probably find that disgusting because you’re just 13. And everyone has different time zones here. Fluther is universal.

If I could freeze time I would go spend it at Disneyland all by myself. And I would bake as much I want.

lebasting's avatar

me?! why?! what’d i do?!

Dog's avatar

@shego Little bat? No- freezing time calls for a dick-punch.

nzigler's avatar

@Tink1113 I thought about that… very tempting but also, very sad, no?

lebasting's avatar

ouch, i can just imagine how the guy who got that is reacting….

Tink's avatar

@nzigler Probably, but since I haven’t been there since I was a child, I’d like to go without there being crying children everywhere.

Dog's avatar

@Tink1113 and no lines- just walk right on past the frozen people

nzigler's avatar

@Tink1113 fair enough. plus, no lines!

edit: damnit dog!

shego's avatar

dog I say this because I want him knocked the f&k out for hurting me.

Tink's avatar

@Dog and @nzigler
Of course!

nzigler's avatar

@shego maybe we need a whole (un)frozen posse to go regulate on this evildoer.

rangerr's avatar

@lebasting If you’re 13, you should be in bed.

@nzigler That’s what I wanted to confirm.

I’d spy on some friends and the SO.. don’t judge me. then go look in folders that nobody is supposed to look in.

I’d go to the zoo and take AMAZING pictures that everyone is going to love, then I’d take a nap somewhere cool haven’t decided where yet.

Finally I’d fall asleep next to my SO and find a way to unfreeze time so when we wake up it’s lovely I’d have to find a way to make him think it’s normal, though.

Dog's avatar

@shego Understood. How about a Louisville slugger?

rangerr's avatar

@Tink1113 I hope you know how to operate rides..
@shego I have horses.. he might like to wake up under one.

Dog's avatar

@nzigler I will get the pitchforks!

Tink's avatar

@rangerr I hope so too!
I have a very angry dog we could let out on that guy @shego.

Dog's avatar

In answer to the actual question I would go to the Smithsonian and look at everything up close without a nervous guard escort.

shego's avatar

Lol. He moved to Cali, and was stupid enough to put his address on his myspace page but I like all of the ideas but the bat I have, has stars on it cause they will be the last thing he sees, I have it all figured out I will hit him with the handle.

rangerr's avatar

@Tink1113 Disney land has the cute peter pan. I’d totally take pictures with him. hoping he’s in a cute position during the freeze.
@Dog Is the Hope Diamond still out of it’s case? I want to touch it.

wildpotato's avatar

Gaza. And the Phillipines. And Rio. And many many other places. Y’know, anywhere they torture children and stuff. I’d love to get a lot of people out of majorly sticky situations. I would need a huge group of frozen-time walkers to help everyone, though.

rangerr's avatar

@wildpotato If I knew how to fly planes or swim across an ocean I’d pick Uganda and beat the hell out of Joseph Kony.

nzigler's avatar

@wildpotato that’s what i’m talking about! Who will join my unfrozen posse? apparently we have lots of work to do.

deni's avatar

@Facade What a great answer. I just gave you a real life round of applause. HAHA :)

As for me, oh heavens. Where to first? There are so many things I’d want to do, nailing down what I’d do first seems like quite a task!!! I think I would go climb one of the Great Pyramids and stare at the desert for as long as I could. Til I got hungry, which wouldn’t be long. But seriously, why not. The view from the top has got to be breathtaking, and I’d be sitting on a FUCKING PYRAMID. I have an Egypt obsession, for those who don’t know. But yeah, I think that’d be it. Also I’d climb around inside and cry from happiness.

IBERnineD's avatar

I would first clean my room, run over to my sister’s to play with my niece, and play some pranks in the ceramics studio at school. :)

deni's avatar

@IBERnineD OH CERAMICS! Can I come? I love pottery. We could make THOUSANDS OF POTS.

Psychedelic_Zebra's avatar

1.) finish writing all those short stories I’ve been putting off for years.
2.) go to a certain enemy’s house, and re-arrange all his furniture in his front yard. Then I’d shave his hair off, drive him to the local mall, and drop him off in the fountain dressed in women’s clothes.
3.) I think I’ll take a page from @Facade‘s book and have some fun with a few really cute straight guys that I know.

IBERnineD's avatar

@deni of course you may come along, how are you with a blow torch?

deni's avatar

@IBERnineD it happens to be my specialty, actually

rooeytoo's avatar

I would go to the nearest Apple store and build myself the most amazing computer and laptop and all the other toys available there. Is that allowed or is it still shoplifting, hehehe.

Then I would go to the wave pool in Darwin and have all the waves to myself, I hate sharing with so many kids!

augustlan's avatar

Count me in on the non-frozen, world savin’ posse. Rowr!

AstroChuck's avatar

The YWCA.

IBERnineD's avatar

@deni Sexcellent, we are going to have fun!

deni's avatar

I just decided to change my answer. I really wanna go to the Galapagos. And pet the big lizards while listening to Dean Martin. HEAVEN!!!!!!!!!!!!

Dog's avatar

I would PAINT a HUGE painting- of a Scottish Pub.
While in Scotland. In a pub. Drinking pints.

ragingloli's avatar

Nowhere.
Because the air that surrounds me, due to being in chronostasis, would become an impenetrable mass of infinite hardness and strength, as it can not be displaced because displacement means movement and that requires the passage of time. I could not even blink or move a finger or my eyeballs.
After I freeze time, I would suffocate within 3 minutes of my reference frame.

Garebo's avatar

I’d go to the deepest trench in the ocean and see if those are really smok’in.

Psychedelic_Zebra's avatar

@ragingloli sure, leave it to you to put an end to our wonderful party. =)

deni's avatar

@Garebo Woah! I was just talking to a coworker today about those deep ass trenches and how much they freak me out. Good idea!

DrasticDreamer's avatar

First, Egypt. Obsessed with the ancient Egyptians.

A close second would be Ireland. I would stay in a castle, on an extremely foggy day, and hunt for ghosts. Would ghosts be immune to a time freeze? Hmmm…

deni's avatar

@DrasticDreamer HUZZAH! egypt! yes!

drdoombot's avatar

I think it would be hilarious to go into the NYC subway or the streets of Manhattan and pull down the tops of the hot chicks, then restart time and watch the fun begin! Over and over and over again!

ItalianPrincess1217's avatar

I’d finally have the courage to march (or drive since it’s pretty far) on over to the bitch’s house that my ex boyfriend was cheating on me with. I would walk up to her, take out my razor (which I have placed in my pocket prior to my march) and shave off her eye brows. I would then walk away with a big smile on my face. She might never know who did it, but I know and that’s all that matters. Revenge is sweet.

rooeytoo's avatar

@ItalianPrincess1217 – hehehe, good one lurve

oratio's avatar

Ok. I think I’ll pass the opportunities of molesting women and assaulting ex’s.

I’ll think of it as a year that doesn’t count. I’d sail to Indonesia and live on an island in the jungle, making new songs on my guitar, trying to get to the root of what life is about. And I’ll work on my abs. I think they might have imploded. There is no God. A god would not let abs implode.

Scarlett's avatar

To the time when I was 14 and had my best friend still alive. Miss him very much. That is where I would travel back in time, so I can have that feeling of his presence.

jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities's avatar

I would go to the Lourve and paint a mustache on every picture. That’s Mr. Mona Lisa now!

irocktheworld's avatar

I would go back to 3rd grade and re-live it again.:) I had great friends,good crushes and a great teacher.What else could you ask for? And there was this one memory from 2nd grade where i was in the mall and I stood up on the stand with my little sister and we started singing the Scooby Doo song and it was hilarious! There was a crowd crowding around us and it was amazing.It was the best memory ever! I wish i could just go back and make it a little better.:D
